Wavesurfing is my first love. So now I have mastered the art of kiteboarding ;) I thought it is about time to buy myself a real kiteboard. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a Gaastra Surfkite. It is a relatively unknown board, although Gaastra has been making kites and boards since a long time. And after a few months of testing I am happy to say that it has opened my eyes for a whole new way of kiteboarding! I have had at least 4 days of massive downwinders with a great board beneath my feet! Thanks Gaastra!

I have not bought the 2011 model because of the cost factor ;) The 2011 Obsession is even more beautiful (especially the black and white model). But taste is personal. So here follows the NO BULLSHIT review of my first RRD!
